Apple Picking

On my birthday I decided I really wanted to go and pick some apples. It was an amazing day, sunny with a beautiful sky…but extra chilly so you wanted to bundle up in scarves and sweaters. My favorite kind of weather.

We went to Baugher’s in Westminster MD, my favorite place for pick-your-own. Their mascot is just the best! You get to ride in a cute little tractor pulled trolley to the apple orchard, and that part is free. They do the same thing when we come to pick strawberries and peaches, but it never gets old.
Then of course there were the gorgeous pumpkins! Every year come fall I am determined to grow pumpkins, next year I am doing it! We did have one pumpkin this year, but it shriveled up and died, it was pretty sad, and then no more grew. Lucky for me I can go pick up beautiful pumpkins that others have grown, but next year–next year I will be a pumpkin grower!
Anyhow it was the most perfect start to my birthday which consisted of cake for breakfast, apple picking, apple cider slushies (yep they had these at Baugher’s…so good!), fabric shopping, then opening up my exciting gifts, putting together legos, and ending the night by watching 1001 Classic Commercials(we didn’t actually watch all 1001 because that is 16 hours, but we did watch all the toy commercials, it was lots of fun)
